Does God Want Me to Be Happy or Holy? // Ask Pastor John

A video published by Desiring God on July 10th, 2018

Does God want me to be happy? Or does God want me to be holy? Which is the priority? Such a question is really vital. This time it comes in the form of an email from a listener named Megan. Megan writes, “Hello, Pastor John! I’m with you when you say that Christian Hedonism says my happiness is not at odds with God’s will for me. But what about the dark season of trials? In these seasons it seems my happiness is not as significant as God’s intent to grow my holiness. How would you describe the pain of trials in light of Christian Hedonism and God’s desire for my joy?” Episode 1222: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/does-god-want-me-to-be-happy-or-holy--2 Related Resources: “Isn’t the Joy-Centered Life Just an Emotional Roller Coaster?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQp024xptKs “Is My Joy Essential in Glorifying God?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4z1yQYI0yI “Does John Piper Add (Joy) to the Gospel?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vumgkJpZ5lE “Do We Have Joy or Fight for It?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx6PBmWuFeU Find other recent and popular Ask Pastor John episodes, http://desiringgod.org/ask-pastor-john
